Node.js vs Zend Framework: What are the differences?

Node.js: A platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices; Zend Framework: An open source, object-oriented web application framework implemented in PHP 5. Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.

"Npm" is the top reason why over 1321 developers like Node.js, while over 22 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Zend Framework.
